“But first… let me take a selfie!” #SELFIE by The Chainsmokers turns 8 years old this year! However, selfies are much older than that. People have been making self portraits in the shape of drawings, pictures, and paintings for years. Technically speaking, you could even count cave drawings by the first homo sapiens as self portraits. The first handheld photograph was made by Joseph Byron in 1909. People were often called narcissistic when Instagram selfies first became a thing. But if that is true, humans have been narcissistic for centuries.
